The highly anticipated and nearly sold-out Hangout Music Festival is only a month away. The 2022 installment of the festival is set to take place on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama, May 20th-22nd. Suppose the festival’s lineup with artists like Post Malone, Tame Impala, Halsey, Doja Cat, Fall Out Boy, and Megan Thee Stallion hasn’t already sold you. In that case, you’re missing out on all the other experiences the festival has to offer. Of the endless activities and experiences you can enjoy at Hangout Music Fest, here are our top eight:

1. Roller Disco

Hangout promoters got creative with utilizing every bit of space for the festival, and that includes a large skating rink complete with skate and sock rentals. Grab your bestie or a date for an Instagram-worthy couple skate.

2. Hammock Beach

The sandy white beaches of Gulf Shores are already an amazing vacation spot, but how relaxing would it be to chill in hammocks under the shade of the palm trees while your favorite artists are playing on stage in the background? Grab a frozen Malibu Rum cocktail and head over to this relaxation station, so you can recharge for all the other activities you will want to interact with.

3. Malibu Beach House

Speaking of frozen Malibu Rum Cocktails, the Malibu Beach House is THE place to see and be seen. Not only are there cool drink options, but the Beach House will have its own lineup of DJs spinning all weekend. You won’t want to miss those epic dance parties!

4. Tropical Spa

If Hammock Beach wasn’t enough relaxation for you, the Tropical Spa will take care of your relaxation needs. Enjoy a tranquil massage or if the beautiful beach sun has got you feeling a little dehydrated, try one of the Hydration IV treatments. The Tropical Spa also has you covered for all of your festival hair care needs. If you are in the mood for glitter roots, hair braiding, color sprays, or a new style to match your perfect festival fit, be sure to schedule an appointment with a Hello Gorgeous Hair Salon stylist inside the Tropical Spa.

5. Wedding Chapel

What is more romantic than eloping on the beach with the sound of the waves crashing on the beach and today’s top performers as your wedding soundtrack? Make your wedding day unforgettable by scheduling a legit wedding ceremony with the Hangout Fest team. You can email them here to make that happen. 

6. Festival Food

One of my favorite things about Hangout Fest is the food. There are a wide variety of food vendors on the festival grounds that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. If you are looking for an air-conditioned spot, head over to The Hangout restaurant, which is also the namesake of the festival! 

7. Photo Ops

The festival itself is a dream for anyone who loves filling their feeds with amazing social media content, but the art installations are a fan favorite for photos. Grab a picture next to the “shaka” statue, also known as the “hang loose” hand, which is the logo that Hangout Fest is known by. There is also an amazing giant statue of the “Shaka Surfer” as well as the Psychedelic Bus, which words could not even begin to do this crazy, colorful made-over school bus justice.

8. The Ferris Wheel

If you want an amazing view of the entire festival, hop a ride on the giant Ferris wheel. Not only can you get a great view of all the stages, but you can also catch a welcome breeze from the gulf if you want to cool off. If you time it just right, you can catch the closing song of the night from the last artist on the Hangout main stage and get a treat with a view of a spectacular firework show.
